Its been a busy few weeks for Topper sailor Ella Fitzgerald. Ella finsihed 10th from a top class entry at the GJW Direct Topper National 5.3 Coastal Championships in Plas Heli Sailing Centre, Pwhelli on the weekend May 15. A superb result in a fleet of over 40 boats.
This followed her 2nd place finish at the most recent Topper Traveller event in Kinsale. Ella finished last season within the Top 10 in the Ireland Topper rankings and we wish her well for the remainder of this season. Full results HERE.
The Topper class is a new class in Sutton over the last 18 months, with now 4 or 5 boats sailing regularly. Lets hope Ellas progress and results help inspire a new generation of young dinghy sailors. Picture is Ella receiving her 2021 Topper Regatta Trophy from Commodore Ciara O’Tiarnaigh.
